Pros and cons of the AR Blue Clean AR383
Best for cleaning
The AR383 can be used to clean almost anything that has dust or grime, including mowers, grills and driveways. The high pressure of the water that the pressure washer provides easily cleans the hardest of places to reach and clean.
The unit is easy to move and is lightweight. The adjustable nozzle helps in determining the direction of the spray and easing cleaning surfaces that are hard to clean, including vehicles and even tires. The unit has a 20 foot hose and a 30 ft long power cable.
The wand attachments
The blue AR383 is packed with 2 different sets of wands: one with a rotating tip, and the other with an adjustable tip for varied angles for spraying. There is hence no need to purchase any extra or additional extensions or accessories. The unit also comes with a bottle for storing chemicals for cleaning, such as detergents or disinfectants.
Water pressure provided by the AR383 is 1900 Psi and volume is 1.5 gpm. With the 3 axial piston wobble plate pump, gun wand, and lasting induction motor, the motor provides 120V at 60 Hz and 12 amp.
One of the biggest drawbacks of this wonderful machine is the leakage in the adapters, where the washers of the attachments and the hose meet. Purchasing a brass male-male hose adapter can ease this problem making using this pressure washer a breeze.
The high pressure hose
The highly pressurized hose the connects the unit with the spray gun is made of stiff plastic. This makes it easier to get tangled and difficult to manage, if trying to clean a large area, say the driveway. Using an alternative rubber hose makes things easier and improves workability.
The built in reel is a good option for storing the hose, but the instances of it getting entangled are more. Alternatively dropping the stiff hose in light loops around the handle makes it much easier to use and also keeps it tangle free.
